As Seen In: Maximum Overdrive (1986)

Don't expect Stephen King to ever give a lengthy, candid explanation about why his lone effort as a movie director, 1986's hysterically inane Maximum Overdrive, is so piss-poor. He's gone on record to say that, during the film's production, he was on all kinds of drugs. Thus, the entire production is a blur to him.

Rather than question why the genius responsible for masterpieces like The Shining, Carrie, and Misery would've ever conceived a movie scene in which a possessed steamroller crushes a little kid on a baseball field, let's just embrace the complete insanity. It's a terrible way to go out for any youngster who loves America's pastime, but for open-minded, brains-off viewers of Maximum Overdrive, it's a tasteless hoot.
